the weekend provided in bullets

I got out of bed early this morning. And by early I mean more than 10 minutes before I’m supposed to leave my house (8:30) in order to get to work on time. Quite honestly, I can leave my place at 8:45 and get there by 9:00, but if that happens, it involves cutting people off and running red lights through downtown Minneapolis. I’m a fan of both, but figure they’re probably not conducive to me keeping my nice, shiny driving record.

This weekend in bullet points:


  • I won 3rd row tickets at Orchestra Hall in a drawing at work.
  • I wore fancy pants after 6pm on a Friday, complete with a jacket.
  • Amazing performance of Russian Spectacular: Season Finale!
  • Joined the crew at Jitters, for a drink and some cheese.
  • Called it a night.


  • Slept in.
  • I made breakfast.
  • We joined Cindi for a lunch of ice cream.
  • Thrift store shopping!
  • Other various shopping.
  • An attempt at going to Sonic (the brand new one in St. Paul) was thwarted by a STAGING AREA they had a couple blocks away. We had Taco Bell instead.
  • $50 did not fill my gas tank up. Sigh.
  • Joined Matt and Jenni at the Northeast Palace.
  • Sat 2 inches away from some crazy lady that kept staring at me. I would have said something, but she had two super drunk friends with her and she had a spider web tattoo on her arm. I didn’t want to be murdered.


  • Slept in.
  • Had cereal for breakfast.
  • Did absolutely nothing until 3p.m.
  • Had to go to work for a minute or two.
  • Cleaned out the ‘fridge, helped with dinner, watched bad TV.
  • Played Jeopardy on the PS2.
  • Called it a night.

And now it’s 11 minutes until it’s time for me to go to work, and guess who’s not dressed? Yep, that’d be me.

What's up?
